UobiiiHoii, ("Old Hurrygraph") in Durham Sun. The Henderson G01.11 Leaf, as bright as the brightest leaf of the golden weed that ever flashed on a warehouse floor, this week begun its HO th volume. It has a good, clean record, and is unsurpassed forenergy and good works, llrother Manning, here's the best of good wishes for you, and may the Leaf never fade. Kiileitfli Nrws and Observer. The Henderson Gold Leaf has en tered upon its thirtieth volume. It was established by young man Thad R. Manning, who has been at the helm every day since. He is not as young as he was, but in heart he will always be young. He is one of the most popular and useful editors in North Carolina. Here's wishing a blessed Christmas and the happiest New Year he has known. Wilmington Star. Editor Thad Manning, of the Hen derson Gold Lfaf, is to be congrat ulated upon the fact that his excel lent paper or Christinas celebrated the 20th anniversary of its existence. In North Carolina where general de velopment is yet in its infancy, the Gold Leaf is considered to be get ting old, but it grows more vigor ous, represents more wisdom and gaina more trustworthiness the older it grows. The reason is that our friend Thad founded the paper and its substantial development is the result of a progressive evolution guided by accumulated experience and steadfast integrity. Tapers which have character and merit like the Gold Leaf deserve to keep on living, and the Star wishes both the f taper and its esteemed editor long iff and prosperity without limit.

Hfck Write Characteristic Letter Wh?rii ftsiilvi Soma Rea sons vhy Republicans Mad Cause to bi Glad and Merry This Christmas, as Never Before Felicitates States men Out of a Jcb (in Statesmanship) and Contra tulaics Them Th:t Some Things are Still Theirs to Enjoy. Correspondence fjrecnslio .W.vp. I'm up uirly this morning with face toward thp -at, waiching the ddwn ing and start of tho un on her northern, higher mid warmer jour ney. 1 have hffir l that one's early morning thoimhts nr. his best and clearest, and I was cogitating over what Republicans have to make them merry this Christmas. The first thing that occurred to me was to congratulate my two friends, ex-fiov. Bob (Jlenn and ex-Judge Ras Jones, and myself, three statesmen out of a job (in statesmanship) that we still have Christmas and a triune God. I really had no fears of losing either, but when I recall how they "took on" in the fall of 1008 at the prospect of losing both if the Repub- icans carried the country, I can t mil I sit help remembering as they and "outside the breastworks." that we still have Christmas and the Trinity, with our happy, laughing children, Santa Chius, Christmas shopping, home-coming and, even .yet, two months after a quasi-Democratic victory, plenty of money with which to pay our debts and buy things at Republican high prices. Merry? Why, certainly! the rosy east never looked prettier to me. When I think what might have been the situation with me this morning if I had spent the last 20 months in sentencing blockaders and trying to decide whether Durham "broke" up Wilson; or, if I had to spend the last two months in shaking off clients and winding up my business prepara tory to reversing the decision in the case of the Coloinal club, nullifying the amendment and validatingthose eleven thousand, eleven hundred and eleven millions of special tax bonds, I feel radiant with lightness and with joy. it don r, matter to me inai those perils are still imminent; that those things must be done by others, for if there ever was any peril of them, there is the same now, though Jose- phus and his ilock have for the time ceased their baying. If it "must needs be that offense come and "woe unto him by whom they Com eth," let us Republicans be glad that we escape that woe, and are allowed to gohappily alongourprivate ways, one to his farm, another to his mer chandise. Be glad and raerrv, Republicans, this Ctiristmas, as never before, that the countrv, and North Carolina in par t ivular are sick, nauseated , surfeit ed with prosperity. It is determined to reduce the tariff and put down the prices of manufactured goods, though it closes the factories, reduces the prices of corn, cotton, tobacco, meat and all farm products, and puts land back to tf.J per acre, bince the world began there never was such a t ime as the last 12 years to make and save money and succeed in business, to get and have. I'm glad of that and for all those who used the times rightlj, and as there are so many folks who don't want it to continue, who call for th "reproofs of chance to find the tru-! proof of men," I yield, though reluctantly, to the change, though it will bring untellable suffer ing to the the weak and improvident. You lust Read This if You Want the Benefit. J. W. Greer, Greenwood, La., suffered with a severe ense of lumbago. "The piiins were so intense I wns forced to hypodermic injec tions for relief. These attacks started with a pain in the small of my back which grad ually became fairly paralyzing. My atten tion was attracted to Foley's Kidney Reme dy and I am glad to say after using this wonderful medicine I am no longer bothered in any way by my o!d enemy lumbago." Sold by all druggists. Yes, sir; we are going from Uncle Joe's auto to Champ' mu!.'. au Champ has actually said "alriad.v" that he will not even have iiiul'-s. Is there, in the semi-classic jesting i f Vance "walking ahead of us?" The point is, for us Republicans to econo mize and not waste, and to takesare : of what we have. If we do, the demos : and the crateos will not hurt us as ' bad as they will themselves. i There is fun ahead of us. even in politics bad as it looks In th ?. Republican states that went demos crateos this year, they are already having the biggest brawls ever heard of. 1 read in a Democratic paper ! that Mr. Bryan's man, Roger Sul-' Iivan, of Illinois, had offered Wood row Wilson the vote of Illinois for : the Presidential nomination, if he ' would let one JonesSmith, a political ' boss, be elected to the Senate from j New Jersey. Tammany Hall is! sharpening its claws to stick deep j into the vitals of New York State through the treasury at Albany. At Washington the Western insurgents, having voted with the Democrats to tie the Speaker's hands by a controll ing committee, the Democrats are now at war on the question of who shall constitute the tieing committee, and they are fearing this committee will tie everything else and be the same kind of big boss they curiously imagined Uncle Joe to be. They hadn't thought of that when de nouncing and dethroning Uncle Joe. Yes, yes; the distress and gloom and the wreck of matter will be some what relieved by the gaiety of those who, if they can 6ave their own es tates, will beamused by thearmaged don of the demos crateos. And we prophetic souls can look beyond and, possibly skipping several Christmases of merriment and joy, see the pendu lum retored to its regular motion. The will of the Lord be accomplished. So mote it be. Amen. May we live to see it, and with it the day of compul sory education, and courageous people who cannot be stampeded by fear of Marion Butler and a Re publican Legislature and Supreme court. By the way, hearty thanks to everyone of those 93,777 who couldn't be this year. The sun is up. The breakfast bell callo to crackling bre'ad, sausage and coffee.

Contributed On Friday afternoon, December 23rd, the children, teacher, a few of the patrons and friends of the public school in Nut bush Township, District No. 4, enjoyed for a few hours, a Christmas tree. The tree itself was a thing of beauty. Being of holly it was a feast to the eyes, with its large clusters of gleaming coral ber ries, shining through the dark green, glossy foliage. A generous supply of presents contri buted by the dear little children to each other, theacher and friends together with the white lawn Christmas stockings, through which the pink and white can dies, nuts and raisins could be seen, and the white coral (pop corn) garlands, also the yellow oranges further enhanced its beauty and value. As the children marched ?nto the most comfortable little school house, they eang the hymn, "Onward Christian Sol diers." A graceful evergreeu "Cross of Jesus Going on Before" was carried by Misses Jennie Fleming and Alics White. ATTENDANT.
